Wedding Band Hampshire Hire a Wedding Band in Hampshire Area

You already know that any number of musicians in wedding band Hampshire selections can provide the live music at your wedding. So, why rather hire Light and Shade?

Wedding Band Hampshire

wedding band hampshireWe are quite different to many other Hampshire wedding acts as we perform live music as a two piece band to suit any budget. Band size, on the other hand, does not affect the quality of sound whatsoever. As much as we perform alongside our custom backing tracks, we're also extremely professional and rather experienced musicians. Our main line up consists of electric guitar, keyboard with male and female vocals. However, you may choose to see/hear more musicians on stage. Simply let us know in the form below and we'll make it happen!

Wedding Band Hampshire Music

As a professional wedding band in Hampshire, our repertoire consists of over 200 songs. These range from 30's immortal classics to today's top dance floor filler hits. Our set list's genre and style also include only the very best of pop, rock, indie, funk, disco, jazz, blues, swing, rock'n'roll and soul. So, you won't have to worry if everyone will be enjoying themselves or not. However, the only complaint you're most likely to get is the sore feet the next day!

Wedding Music the Duo Band Plays

The live wedding music generally falls into two categories, during the drinks or dinner section and as the main entertainment at the evening reception. Both types of music have different requirements from the music. Light and Shade can supply either type or both on the same day!

We are able to provide live music for the entire day and evening. You can also have the wedding duo to play during the day and then with additional band members, turn into a bigger wedding band for the reception!

Additionally, since marriages are all unique, so are the people involved, so let us help customise a day or night of music that is as subtle or as loud as you need it to be.

How Much Does the Wedding Duo Band Cost?

We also do not charge extra to learn and perform a special song during the booking and our wedding duo or band rates are much cheaper than many others! Send your enquiry below, and let us add the extra sprinkle of magic to your special day!

Hire a Wedding Band | What to consider when you hire a wedding band

Hire a Wedding Band

As you know, when you're considering to hire a wedding band it is important to pick the right performers for the event you are planning.

hire a wedding bandHire a Wedding Band: What to consider

Keeping this in mind, you need to consider what type of band you want to attend your event. Not to mention where they are based (unlike Light & Shade they may charge travel costs), how long you would want them to play for and most importantly, the type of music you and your guests require.

Hire a wedding band: duo

hire a wedding band hampshirehire a wedding band musicA duo is a great choice whether you are planning to have live music immediately after your ceremony, at the drinks celebration, while guests dine or at the wedding breakfast. The perfect alternative in terms of budget and space. A duo at a dinner can play at multiple occasions. For example, while your guests are arriving, during service or between speeches. Also, even after the meal while they transfer to the next part of your day to party. Coverage for all the sore feet the next day is not available! (Average prices from £200)

Hire a wedding band: trio

Trios are a great choice if you are looking for plenty volume at your event but perhaps you are limited on space. For example a reception held in your favourite public house. A trio is also another alternative if you are limited on budget too. (Average prices from £280)

Hire wedding band: large

If you have plenty space and more budget then a larger band might be a better option to choose. Again, you may need to consider what you want to hear from the band. For example, do you want them to have a double bass player, a complete brass section, or a rapper/beat-boxer combined with dancers and light shows? (Average prices from £350-£1000)

In all cases, Light and Shade can provide live wedding bands to hire in duo, trio or larger band format.
